    put a 14 week old Polish pullet with a 5 week old Sebright Bantam?

    The Polish was picked on and she seems a little "slow"so I moved her to her own chicken condo....I got her a roommate but she is a 5 week Sebright and smaller than I thought she would be..... The Polish doesnt seem aggressive but does give the occasional peck but the Sebright seems to think the Polish is her friend alright. The Sebright was even pecking the feed crumbs off the Polish's beak this morning. However, I am afraid to leave them alone..but I cannot watch them all day either.

    Do you think they are ok together, or should I keep the Sebright out until she gets a little bigger?

    Any suggestions greatly appreciated! Thanks ...Rebecca

    I would leave them alone together for awhile and then go and check on them. If they seem to be doing okay, then everything is probably fine.
